    NGD - S2 McCarty Singlecut, getting black pickup rings

    This is my introduction to PRS guitars. I got back into playing a few years back, having played mostly a LP Deluxe from the fretless wonder era and a MIJ swamp ash Tele with Texas Special pups. Nice axes but, having drunk the Fractal Cool-Aid for the last year and noting how many of those the...

    NGD Custom 24-08 cobalt blue

    I've read the stories about people having a long wait when ordering a core model, but 18months definitely put my patience to the test. Glad it's finally over.

    NGD Fiore Black Iris Mod

    So!! After a rocky start (faulty microphonic Humbucker, and these vintage locking tuner not staying in tune), I can finally celebrate a NGD here!! The humbucker has been swapped for a brand new one that PRS Europe kindly sent. I also upgraded the tuners to the Phase III (I just love them on my...

    NGD - S2 594 Thinline

    So I told myself I was done after I bought my Core 594 Singlecut. Then, I said I was *really* done after I bought the Core Hollowbody Piezo. Then...I started reading up on the S2 Thinline, and was intrigued by the thinner neck carve, and thinner/lighter body. Came across this custom-colored...

    NGD x 2: 408 10 top and a Vela Reclaimed

    It’s been a fun journey thru PRS land. I’ve gone thru many models to find those I like. I’ve met plenty that intrigued me but these 2 are simply something else for me. The 408 electronics blow my mind. Why it didn’t catch on more is beyond me. My only guess would be the proprietary pickups. But...

    NG'sD - Custom 24 ..........and McCarty - thanks to you guys!!

    Full disclosure. Not two new guitars on one day, but close enough that I'm combining them into one post. I actually picked up the faded green Custom 24 a few weeks ago......and then thanks to spending too much time on this forum got interested in the McCarty 594, and what do you know, one...

    NGD - Hollowbody II Piezo (one more try to fix pics!)

    I've never named any of my guitars before, but may I now introduce you all to "Neo": Originally had Gold tuner buttons, I had them swap out for the Faux Bone. I think they're a better match with the pickup rings Flame on! (along with some funky lighting reflections) I found several...

    The Officially Official New Guitar Day

    Some of you will remember that I had pretty bad accident back in February, when I went head on into a vehicle that crossed the double yellow line. As a result, I spent the rest of the day in the ER and out of work until June with a broken hand. During my recovery I bought my SE Hollow Body II...

    NGD - Vela SH VCS!

    Was very skeptical about the vintage cherry, the satin nitro, the S2 hype, the Vela. But now. Now I’m enlightened! So light! So red! Smooth! I'm just going to keep listing positive adjectives here! Just Wow!

    NGD - Roxy Pink SS

    I was able to score this beauty with a luckily timed call to Willcutt’s on my way home from work today before they listed it! I am very happy with the way the pink looks in person, and the guitar feels/sounds phenomal! I’ve seen a few of these trickling out on Reverb so hopefully some of you...

    NGD Pho-Oh-Ate has arrived

    Finally got here around 7:30 last evening, played it only a little this AM as I'm on the IR with a right wrist injury from a ladder incident we will not discuss. The few minutes i was able to play I can definitely hear how the 408 pickups are so endeared by Mr. PRS himself. The clarity is...

    Help me choose!

    I'm having some issues deciding which guitar I want to go for. I do not yet own a PRS, but I've been actively researching them nearly every day for the past 8 months or so. I know all the models and how they work, but with that, it makes it even harder to choose. The only thing I know is that...

    NGD: My first Private Stock, SSH in faded pomegranate

    I’ve been eyeing this on Willcutt’s website for about a year after buying a WL SSH last summer. I have been torn, since buying a Private Stock or 2-3 core/artist/WL models is the same amount money. How can I justify one guitar for the price 2-3 guitars that I know would be killer? Well, I...

    NGD: PRS Studio 10-Top in Eriza Verde!

    I’ve been looking at the old studio models for about three years and could never find one in Eriza Verde. When I saw the one on the virtual launch event earlier this year, I knew I had to have one. Countless phone calls and a lot of website refreshes later and I managed to grab one of the first...
